Great venue, although you will run into people who use the term "zeitgeist" in casual conversation
I love the Blackberry Lounge. Grab a glass of wine, hook your laptop up and crunch out some work while people watching on King St. P.S. This place is wired beautifully!
These are the most comfortable theater chairs I've ever sat in.

I was going to buy tickets online, but they are a dollar more than if I go to the box office. This place run by Ticketmaster?
Make sure you order tickets online and pick up at the willcall window. Just in case there are lineups
The upstairs bar is good for people-watching over king street with a cocktail.
Films as they're meant to be seen. From Chinatown to Melancholia, each print I've seen has been crisp and bright. No hair/scratches; pristine sound. Film is an art form, and Lightbox is its gallery.
There are two unmarked washrooms hidden behind the escalators on the main floor. Handy if the ones upstairs are busy.
The monolithic $191 million headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival, held each September, is at the heart of downtown.
In addition to the annual film festival, I particularly like the old classics shown on the big screen, e.g., 2001, Chinatown, Jaws, as well as the career director retrospectives.
Get the semolina gnocchi!
Try to avoid sitting too close to the screen, you'll hurt your neck.
Grace Kelly exhibition is absolutely brilliant!
Dont forget to check out the rooftop! Nikki Beach parties at TIFF

Be certain to visit the Film Reference Library. It houses the world's most extensive English language collection of Canadian film-related material.
Bet you'll never see Mayor Coby at a film or in the building...
If you like washing your hands in cool temp water, wash them before coming here. Only warm water in these automatic faucets.
If you have kids make sure to go to the 3rd floor. Stop-motion stations, green room shoot. Great entertainment 4 every1
Amazing just to roam and feel the zeitgeist
This place takes a "movie date" to a whole new level. Cute location & building, and the Kijiji cafe adds a little pizzazz!
